Here's the photo's of the bung, i couldn't find the ones of the drain line. Ill take some tomorrow and post them up.

I positioned the bung so the oil flow from the turbo hits the metal tray rather than have the possibility of it flowing out and splashing against the crank shaft.

I would say its extremely difficult to weld a bung onto the sump of the I6 with the engine in place.

As I said before, I know how to TIG MIG, Oxy, Solder but there is just no room with the engine in the car to do it.

Gluing it with the kneedable fuel tank repair stuff is the easiest untill such time you have the engine out.

Of course there will be those who have claimed to have done it but there are also those who have claimed that they welded up the clutch pedal assembly with it in the car when I thought the only sensible thing was to rip it out to weld it.

i've always punched, with a tapered punch, tapped and devcon'ed JIC fittings into the sumps, never had a problem with them leaking.
